Summary: Civ 3 for the Mac is another edition of the highly-successful Civ series and Sid Meier deserves kudos for another strong product. Gameplay is entertaining and a clear step up in many ways from its 1996 predecessor.
Summary: Civ III is a wonderful game -- if it'll run on your Mac. The box is seriously misleading (it says it supports iMacs), with the result that I bought it for my new Intel iMac, only to have it crash and crash hard every time a city changes hands.
Summary: Basically you can purchase the Conquests version for a little more money and it's the Gold edition with a few more features. Plus if you buy this version, you will NOT be able to play multi-player with others (most people) who have the Conquests edition.
Summary: Civilization 3 Gold is really nothing more than the original Civilization 3 game packaged with the first expansion, Civilization: Play the World. While this may seem like a good deal, you can actually buy the second expansion in the Civilization series, Civilization: Conquests, which is included...
Summary: In their attempts to improve upon Civilization II, the producers of Civilization III have proved the old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." While the graphics are beautiful there are numerous features that deserve debate.
Summary: This expansion to the CIV3 world is 'okay'. I say 'okay' because in essence it is the Play the World add-on with a few extras and scenarios. I don't like paying for scenarios. There are entirely too many available online for free, some even better than those being sold in this package to justify the...
Summary: I am a big fan of the first two installments in the Civ series and was eagerly awaiting the third game. However, when I began to play the game I started to feel that it was thrown together without the needed polish to make it a good game.
Summary: The long awaited sequel to; perhaps, the best strategy game of all time is Civilization III. It may also be the most disappointing sequel. This review will be slanted for people who have played Civilization II.
Summary: After about a week of playing, I'm getting more and more upset with Civ 3. Here are some of my latest gripes: - The Culture Effect seems to have problems. In one game, even though I'd built 16 out of 24 Great Wonders and 7 out of 10 Small Wonder, and my Culture, at over 40,000, was almost 3 times...
Summary: I bought the game expecting a wonderous upgrade from civ2. Well, Sid Meir did two things, he merged civ call to power's good features with civ 2, but so poorly, that with a 700mhz athalon, you have to switch off the animations for it to allow any speed in later games.
